by the camera people and they did a lovely job on that. hello, america. all week we've been wondering which president would show up for the "state of the union" address. would it be the hey, people aren't digging my agenda, triangulate move to center, obama. or would it be the arrogant do-it-my-way progressive obama? i don't think we saw either of the guys show up last night. arrogant progressive, at least to me doesn't even begin to describe what i saw last night. it was more like watching, i don't know, fabio stare at himself and then that randy macho man savage part of obama educate america on how great he is. you know what i mean? one conclusion i draw from last night is the president thinks we're all stupid. america sent a clear message to washington in the recent months. his response wasn't a message of slowing down or cutting back, or even listening or responding to peech ing ting to. with a we got is keep your mouth shut and fall in line or i'll give you another speech because you were so stupid you didn't understand the last one. my plans are really great. one of the teams last nig
that america's competitive advantage is in financial products and financial engineering. and that these banks do produce a lot of foreign armies for the u.s. and if we start really knocking down wall street, which is getting competitive advantage to the germans, british, japanese or whoever, i don't agree with that. but you know, i think it underlies a lot of the reluctance of the administration to really get to too tough with wall street that they say it's like yesterday was good for general motors is good for america. now it's what's good for goldman sachs is good for america. not necessary goal but because they are so unpopular. but what's good for jpmorgan chase is good for america. >> no line has been drawn. there's been no edition. basically mathematics. so therefore says that as it may be, deficit. since we are tiptoeing past the cemetery nobody wants to do the math. >> there are some people, the argument here is that banks haven't dealt with a bad debt problem. they're still sitting on their balance sheet so we will end up like japan presumably. i think there is very respected people,
" poll might give both parties pause. 21% approve of the job congress is doing running america, that includes the republican minority that would have everyone believe that it was simply an upon the moderator. the president says he gets it. >> the same thing that swept scott brown into office swept me into office. people are angry and they're frustrated. >> so what does it all mean for health care, for instance? here is our "reality check" not just for the democrats but everyone working in washington, d.c. if this doesn't make it obvious, i don't know what will. if you let the special interests write your legislation for you the voters are going to throw you out of office. case in point. as we all watched the extraction of any actual reform from the helicopter bill, person pechuation of the monopoly, no portability, no choice. the insurance monopoly represented by their stocks reaped the rewards of a government that was not only going to not reform the system but mandate everybody buy their health insurance into an unreformed monopoly. they call that freedom? i don't think so. a
>>> on "america this morning," breaking news, the catastrophic earthquake in haiti, leveled buildings in port-au-prince, and fears what could be an astronomical death troll toll subpoena search and rescue teams do anything to help. >>> full coverage of the disaster. and frustrations in sending in help. >> it's wednesday, january 13th, 2010. >>> good morning. and thanks for being with us on this special edition of "america this morning." i'm vinita nair. >> and i'm eric horng. jeremy hubbard is on assignment. we begin with the still breaking news. the worth earthquake to hit haiti in two centuries. surveillance video taken in the dominican republic not far from the epicenter, show the frigeninscene as people run for cover. and new pictures from "the new york times," set the scene in haiti, as thousands are feared dead and hundreds could be trapped. >> hundreds of buildings are either damaged or destraited. communications in and out of haiti are virtually cut off. and it could be some time before aid arrives because the airport is now closed. the cost guard has ships and plane
-span's "america and the courts." n/a 524 decision, the supreme court struck down limits on contributing to political campaigns from corporations. anthony kennedy delivered the opinion. in it, he broke the government may not suppress political speech. a sufficient interest justifies political speech by nonprofit or for-profit opinions. shortly after the court announced its decision, floyd abrams, the attorney who argued on behalf of mitch mcconnell and citizens united president david bossie sport with reporters. >> i represented mitch mcconnell in the case and was one of the lawyers who argued it in the supreme court. this is an extraordinarily triumphant day. the court has ruled that corporations, unions, and all the rest of us may participate freely and openly and spend money on the electoral and political matters. this decision is a long time coming, and as the opinion of justice kennedy makes clear, it involves the reversal of two prior opinions, one involving senator mcconnell, one two years before. the core of it all is that the right to participate in, participate about and be hea
>>> if there is anyone out there who still doubts that america is a place where all things are possible, tonight is your answer. change has come to america. >> you lie! >> in america today people are angry. one in five of us out of work, one in four in houses worth less than the mortgage that lays on top of them, health care reform derailed before our very eyes by special interests and back room deals and wall street continuing to be allowed to gamble with our money in secret. the outrage understandable in america. and that outrage partially aimed at president obama and the political games he has yet to be able to break up in this country and, in fact, has himself become a part of. take a look. nbc news "wall street journal" poll shows 70% think washington isn't doing enough to regulate wall street. no surprise. they have done nothing since the collapse to claw back money, tax future profits let alone close the loopholes that got us into the mess. meanwhile, an overwhelming 84% think lobbyist have too much influence on capitol hill and in the white house. think of the back
afghanistan, where in a momeabout, we're going to bring you the war you do not see. america's 21st century war. but there is breaking news back home tonight, so let's go straight to new york where george stephanopoulos is standing by. >> there's been a huge earthquake, magnitude 7.0 off the coast of haiti. early reports of extensive damage are coming from the capital, port-au-prince, 700 miles from miami. dan harris has the latest. >> reporter: it is hard to imagine a country less able to cope with a devastating earthquake. the 7.0 quake hit this afternoon about ten miles west of haiti's capital city. according to a photographer on the ground, at least one hospital has collapsed and people are screaming for help. we reached 15-year-old valerie by phone. >> there's a lot of people in the street everywhere, some of wounded. badly wounded. >> reporter: haiti can barely take care of its people under normal circumstances. i was there not long ago and saw how underdeveloped it is with poorly constructed buildings that make people particularly vulnerable to a massive quake. >> i am concerned. we're l
the government for their own benefit at the expense of america's future and its taxpayers. washington is never going to change the game until voters and consumers demand that they do so. and joining us now, joe kline, a columnist for "time" magazine, author of the 92 campaign. lanny davis, former special counsel in the white house and arianna huffington. welcome all three of you to our inaugural program. mr. kline, good to see you. >> good to be here. >> i look at this and say, oh, my goodness gracious, these people are running my country. these people are making decisions about our country in the context of a value system and a culture that clearly is oblivious to the fact that 50 or 60 years have gone by. am i being too harsh on them? >> yes i've covered like nine of these. >> i understand. >> and my dad, you know, my idea of a great politician is a guy who cheated on his wife continually, drank a pitcher of martinis every night, lied to the public. lied to the staff. and my parents voted for him four times. franklin d. roosevelt. i don't care. this stuff is interesting. it's fun. it's juicy
the amount of risk any one bank in america can take on in an effort to make their executives rich. under these rules, your bank could no longer gamble with your money. >> as economics professor william black who has joined us a number of times pointed out this morning, this is a great start. and i could not agree more, or applaud the president or his administration more for their efforts, finally, to take on directly our bankers who have sought to exploit their special privileges, not to help our democracy or our country, but to help themselves to enrich themselves. joining us now, we welcome back in fact senator maria cantwell, democrat from the great state of washington. and a member of the senate finance committee. she has been front and center pushing for stronger bank reform, including a proposed piece of legislation last fall in which you partnered with senator john mccain to propose the cantwell/mccain amendments to the senate legislation that would effectively try to reduce this exact type of gambling, gambling with other people's money. your reaction to the president's proposal,
and in the commodity area there. bank of america, they had a loss of 60 cents. that was a bit larger than a consensus loss of 52 cents. the bottom line is pretty simple. credit is slowly improving at bank of america and many other banks. that's what the -- what most traders were telling me this morning here. also, wells fargo also reported a profit here. a little bit better than expected but loan loss reserves were reduced as well. trader talk.cnbc.com. scott, how are we looking at the nasdaq? >> we can open a few points to the downside. that's what the remarket indicator is showing. take a look at big cap technology stocks. most are showing modest losses in the premarket but we're focused on apple down about 0.5% as there is a report it's talking with microsoft about making bing the default search engine on the iphone replacing google. you have microsoft shares still under pressure this morning. google down as well in the premarket. across the board really oracle, intel, and research in motion are all to the down side. certainly there is a lot of focus on technology stocks today in the wake of the b
and we will talk to jason deparle about poverty in america and the economy. from the nation's capital, this is " washington journal." host: the supreme court ruled 5- 4 to allow corporations to spend as much as the want to support or oppose individual candidates. the ruling is likely to also allow labor unions to send unlimited funds. the justices kept in place, though, a century old ban on corporate donations directly to any one candidate. let us kickoff today's " washington journal" talking about the supreme court decision. the phone lines -- send us a tweet at c-spanwj or e-mail us at journal@c-span.org. "the washington post" on this story. the court also overturned a ban on corporations and unions airing campaign ads in the 30 days before primary and 60 days before a general election. also in "the washington post" this morning they talk about the reaction on capitol hill. inside "the washington post" its quotes senator charles schumer -- bound to push for new restrictions on corporate political spending, including limits for companies with government contracts, sharehold
. why is light versus dark still an issue? maybe the broader america doesn't understand lighter skinned black people were treated better because they were seen more proximate to the dominant white culture, given better privileges in slavery because they were produced by unions between white men and black women. there is a huge tension in the broader society. lighter skinned blacks are seen tore liked by whites. negro dialect, what does that mean? jesse jackson is one of the most eloquent men we know, so is al sharpton. they all ran for president of the united states of america. joe biden made the same comments. mr. obama needs to step up to the bully pulpit and not be loathe to deal with the issue of race and say this is a teachable moment. yes, we can can accept the apology of mr. reid. let's deal with light skinned versus dark skinned and teach america about some of these more vicious issues. otherwise they do look like hypocrites in my book. >> i heard so many people over the weekend say they were surprised by this but you cover the election, as did i. there were people who did not u
line on bank of america, although the number came in a little bit below expectations, 60 cent, the credit trends are clearly improving a little bit. that's what's important here. we also of course had wells fargo. their numbers beat expectations but still got a lot of real estate problems out there from the old wachovia deals. how about the hmos here, yes, certainly any kind of confusion on the health care reform issue probably would benefit hmos, but in the general market, weakness after a couple of nice moves to the upside, they ended up close to the lows for the day. maria, back to you. >> bob, thanks very much. meanwhile, technology took a beating today despite ibm's strong earnings report. scott wapner manning the nymex for us. ibm set the tone, didn't it, scott. >> reporter: absolutely, maria. selling on the news is what we're seeing again. take a look at intel, for example, that stock had much better than expected earnings. the stock sold on the news. ibm, pretty good earnings as well. stock sold on the news. take a look at what the nasdaq's performance was today in tho
as well said delinquencies fell in december and chargeoffs continue to rise and bank of america, you see it in the bottom of your screen down 3% as well. even though intel had better-than-expected earnings and it's a sell on the news picture today because you've seen the semiconductor index weigh on the major averages as well and some of those chip names like texas instruments almost to the downside. teradyne as well. amd is bucking the trend even though it's a fractional move to the upside. fertilizer stocks i continue to watch those. we'll continue to watch both of those shares. agrium to the down side by more than two bucks and potash is having a pretty good day as the price target was raised over it, rbc. take a look at some of the office supply companies as they're focused around a modest recovery, if you will in the job market, and i mean modest. it was upgraded by j.p. morgan to overweight from neutral. in the labor market you've seen staples and office depot rising on the back of that as well. schlumberger was raised to a buy over at jefferies and then kellogg was upgraded to a b

. what is our policy currently in latin america and how different is it from the bush administration? >> we really don't have a policy to latin america. that is not a fault of the obama administration. the euna states needs universal bilateral policies in certain regions. there are many long past policies for the night states -- the united states need to direct -- differentiate among different countries in the hemisphere. we have different priorities now. we are slow in washington on the hill and in the white house to come to that understanding. host: what is the political landscape in latin america? how has the landscape changed politically down there? guest: there is a much more diverse ideological group of countries such as venezuela and ecuador and bolivia which are not very friendly to the united states or to the market economy. on the other hand, we have a prpragmatic president likelula in central america. we have the problem of cuba and we have a terrible problem with haiti. host: on the issue of haiti, there is an article about a question of commitment and can the united stat

of america, a real laggard, down. chip stocks, this is classic sell on the news as intel had much better than expected earnings after the bell yesterday, though texas instruments, teradyne and advanced microdevices which was positive earlier in the session has since turned negative. let me show you commodity stocks as well because it's a significant story. gold itself was down a dollar today. excuse me, oil was down $1 and as a result, those stocks and other commodity-related stocks are to the downside as well. let's head up to the nasdaq now and mike huckman. >> thanks, scott. in addition to the strocker dollar, the reason we're now 1.3% or almost 30 points lower here at the nasdaq is because the chips are down. we're talking a 3% loss in the philadelphia semiconductor index. of course, it's intel that is leading wait lower here, down 2% right now despite the fact that the company hand ily beat the street. novellus is down 3.5%. the lone exception in the chip sector is qualcomm, perhaps on a relatively bullish shoutout on "squawk box" this morning. then we have the j.p. morgan-led weakness i

viewers to understand is the fact that total debt in america is, in fact, the not dproeg. it's a widely spread belief that all debt in america is growing out of control. in reality, the private sector is contracting faster than the government is spending and i think this is reducing the amount of dollars in circulation. when you reduce the supply, you drive up the price. >> very interesting, emil. we're going to leave it there for now and you'll be with us throughout the hour. right now, let's get you caught up on some of the big stories we've been following around the globe. president obama's chances of passing health care reform suffer a major setback as scott brown, republican, wins the senate seat held by ted kennedy in massachusetts. democrats may not have enough time now to resolve differences between the house and the senate health care bill and get new cost estimates before brown is sworn in. that leaves house democrats with the unpalatable option of trying to pass a senate bill that many disagree with. that stinging defeat in the senate comes on the one year anniversary of pres
